Two dead after separate fatal collisions near Grande Prairie
Two people have died in separate fatal collisions near Grande Prairie this weekend.
A 68-year-old Grande Prairie man died Saturday after a three-vehicle collision near Bezanson, Alta.
It happened around 4 p.m. on Highway 43 and Secondary Highway 670.
RCMP say a pickup truck pulling a trailer was traveling east on Highway 43 when the victim in an SUV tried to turn east on the same highway.
That’s when the two vehicles collided.
A third vehicle traveling behind the truck crashed into the two vehicles after the initial collision.
The cause of the collision is still under investigation.
Bezanson is a hamlet located about 35 kilometres east of Grande Prairie.
A 40-year-old Grande Prairie woman died Sunday after a two-vehicle collision south of the Wapiti Bridge.
The woman was traveling south on Highway 40 when she reportedly crossed the centre line into the path of a northbound semi-truck and trailer. The driver of the truck was not injured.
Police are reminding the public to drive safely this May long weekend.
